confidence mitt romney on the trail. >> we had a little debate earlier this week and i enjoyed myself. you had the chance to hear his answers or non answers. now, of course, days later, we're hearing his excuses. >> but while the romney campaign body language has changed, both are anxiously awaiting the first good post debate polls. those will give us our first look at the race after the debate and the friday unemployment report. plus, where will romney be when the results of those polls begin to come in. will he be in coin flip races in places like ohio, iowa and wisconsin? where will the president's number be? still sitting at 49 or 50 or have fallen down to 47, 48? national tracks are one thing. battleground states are another. tuesday, romney stumps virginia, then ohio with chris christie in cuyahoga falls. in three straight rallies in florida, he recounted his memories of a 14-year-old boy, david, that he befriended with leukemia. >> i sat down next to him and he said what happens next? and i spoke with him about what i believe happens next. clear eyes, full heart, can't lose. david c

that that debate has really, really helped mitt romney. >> yeah, i don't think the romney campaign could have wanted to do any more with this debate than they did. if you look across the board at these numbers, wolf, romney has made gains in almost every area including somebody who's better able to improve the jobs situation. he leads -- romney leads obama by eight points on that. so whether it's on the economy, whether it's on leadership, he's now tied with the president. as far as leadership ability is concerned. so i think romney got everything out of that debate and more. >> he certainly did. and if you take a look at -- let me put the numbers back on the screen one more time. earlier this month before the debate, romney was behind the president, the president, 51%, romney, 43%. eight-point difference. now 49% for romney, 45% for obama, a four-point spread. that's a 12-point spread in only, what, three weeks, shall we say? and clearly the major development was his strong performs at that debate. >> you know, wolf, it just shows you that voters are still really weighing the pluses and minu

to the debate, there's that moment where governor romney says, how long are we going to get the chinese pay for what we're doing? the chinese on the one hand are paying for what we're doing because they own a lot of the debt. on the other hand, the navy is asking for billions more to defend against the chinese. where are they going to get that money from the chinese? we're tied in. it's one world. not necessarily a good one. >> that's why these are the kinds of things that have to be put on the able, one would expect, and discussed. >> i think at 11:20 a.m., chairman rogers is going to join us today. >>> when we come back, barnes & noble upping the ante in the tablet wars. in an exclusive, ceo bill lynch will tell us how their venture with microsoft will help barnes & noble take on amazon. >>> and making the case for groupon's future. we'll talk with the co-founders. >>> and taking another look at futures, lower opening after weakness in shanghai and europe today.

. after that first debate when a lot of pundits on the right and the left were sensing that mitt romney might be moving to the middle on domestic policy issues, there might be some of that on foreign policy when we hear this speech later on this morning. >> jim acosta, we'll check back with you. >>> okay. let's take another peek at the obama campaign's preemptive strike. remember, it's called a prebuttal because it's challenging a speech romney will not give for a couple more hours. listen. >> when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, "the new york times" said romney's knee-jerk response showed an extraordinary lack of presidential character. even republican experts said romney's remarks were the worst possible reaction to what happened. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> see? the battle's already begun. the president, by the way, wrapping up a two-day fundraising blitz in california. he's expected to raise about $9.5 million. last night's shindig had a-listers like katy perry, jon bon jovi and george clooney. >>> a remin

, particularly right now with a new administration, possibly a romney administration will do because they've gone back and forth from the far left to almost the middle in the last debate and so maybe what we expect to be an extreme republican position will be a very moderate republican position. we just don't know that yet. we don't know how much is a noise of politicians, sound bites and momentary attempts to appease the crowd on both sides. i don't think that one would make a market forecast based on one's prediction on whether romney comes into president or obama remains in. >> mr. vogel, let's go back here on the expectations of real returns for investors because i think you're talking about something that could be incredibly important. there's been tremendous concern regarding pension funds and their expected rates of returns on a yearly basis of around 8%. some said that's unrealistic. do you believe that's now fair? >> it's ridiculous. it's a numbers game in which the bested interest of the pension managers are to offer high returns and bested interest of the pension funds themselves are n
